About meI am a book fanatic living in South Florida. I love travel, photography, reading, and living in joy. I have a spiritual counseling practice and also facilitate Artist's Way and Vein of Gold classes (based on Julia Cameron's books).
One of my favorite authors, Zora Neale Hurston, spent her last years in Fort Pierce, the town I have called home since 2005. Her unmarked grave was located by Alice Walker who honored this spectacular writer as she so deserved.

About my libraryI love memoirs, beautifully written fiction, books about ordinary people living life in an extraordinary way and books that open my heart.

These days I read about 3 books a month, way fewer than when I was unhealthily addicted to reading! Each year I include a list of my 25 favorite books in with my Christmas cards. At the end of the year, I delete any books read that year that are not in my top 25 list, so other than the most recent books listed (and a few Early Reviewer Books that I indicate are not top 25 books), all in my LT library are favorites.

My ratings are as follows:
5 - one of the best books I've ever read
4 1/2 - an outstanding, memorable book
4 - a great book
